This file was made from a recording put on vinyl in the late 1940s in New York City. During the novelty song craze of that era, many aspiring musicians like Nick (a trombonist) tried to make a breakthrough with one gimmick or another. Nick's gimmick was a unique way of whistling which enabled him to cover a broad range and sound out rapid-fire staccato notes, as displayed in his performance of Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 2. To hear this also brings to the eyes of those whose childhoods were brightened by the frequent sound of his special whistling ability.
